Officers were dispatched yesterday afternoon to a report of a vehicle that had left the roadway and rolled over several times on westbound Interstate 30, just west of the Kings Highway overpass. The vehicle came to rest upside down on the side of the road. Wilson, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was ejected from the vehicle during the crash, thrown approximately fifty feet past where the vehicle stopped, and landed in a water filled ditch.

Investigators determined that Wilson was involved in an argument with one of the passengers just prior to the crash, which led to him driving erratically. He swerved to the right and lost control of the vehicle, causing it to leave the roadway and flip several times.
